Hiab Increases Truck-Mounted Forklift Manufacturing Capacity
Hiab, part of Cargotec, has received 3 large orders for a combined value of €12.9 million ($18.5 million) for Moffett truck-mounted forklifts and HIAB loader cranes in the U.S.
Two nationwide builders’ supply companies placed separate orders for Moffett truck-mounted forklifts and heavy range HIAB loader cranes.
In addition, a liquified gas distributor has placed an order for HIAB X-HiDuo 072 and HIAB X-HiDuo 082 loader cranes from the light range. The cranes offer great performance, flexibility and high levels of safety in a light crane body.
“Bulky and hazardous but essential energy items alike can be delivered safely and efficiently with Hiab’s equipment. We are very pleased that some of the largest names in their industries have put their faith in Hiab to deliver on their promises to their customers,” said Jani Koskinen, senior manager Strategic Accounts, Hiab.
To meet demand for truck-mounted forklifts, Hiab will expand manufacturing to the U.S. Simultaneously the production capacity in Dundalk, Ireland, is being increased and a new multi-assembly unit planned. The second Hiab production facility for truck-mounted forklifts will be established in Streetsboro, Ohio, where Waltco liftgates are manufactured.
“With the increased demand for our truck-mounted forklift products in the U.S., we are extremely excited to start manufacturing here in Ohio. This will allow us to provide reduced lead times to our customers, additional capacity for growth, and reduce CO2 emissions associated with transportation,” said James Oreck, vice president Sales & Services, North Americas, Hiab.
